Default Rose Bush and Grass

I've got a rose bush that is over thirty years old. Problem is taht
grass is overtaking the bush and is impossible to pull out of or trim to
the ground within the bush. I wish the grass grew as well, in the rest
of the yard.
Any ideas?

I do'nt know much about rose bushes but can You get a fabric or
plywood skirt around the base that extends to a point that You can mow
to? Watering could be a problem unless the skirt material would allow
rain to soak in..

They make a post-emergence grass killer that is relatively safe to use
under roses (plus many other plants). Pennington Pride is one brand.
But you may have to wait until next year to use it since it has to be
applied in the spring when the grass is less than 8" tall.
They also make a pre-emergence grass preventer for use under roses,
but it will not control already growing grasses.

I would like to say that I have a garden in my house and I grow many plants and rose in it.I visit it in the morning and evening for collecting some fresh airs and freshness.I suggest you should make a fence around your beautiful garden.

Both wild and cultivated grass seeds can take hold and grow in the rich soil that normally exists around rose plants. Lawn grass, like weeds, competes for both soil moisture and soil nutrients. In time, the grass can lead to nutritional deficiencies in the soil around the rose roots.
